I have sent clients there before and they were thrilled.
The man/myth/legend that is Grayson offered me Raphael when I asked where to send NYC clients once and I must say that his suggestion was very good. My customers unanimously reported that Raphael was golden.

Is the rumor that Rapheal does alterations true as well?

My UNDERSTANDING - you should ask, is that he will if it is something special. I don't send guys there to have a pair of trousers altered but do send guys there with Kiton suit.

By all reports he's a kind and wonderful gentleman.

I meant to say Lisapop recommended Raphael, not Grayson.
Just trying to give due credit and Marc's suggestion tu use his name proved a fine recommendation. Thanks Marc... er Lisa

Carlo, thanks for the nice words. Glad things worked out with your clients and Raph. He's very busy, but if anyone uses my name, he'll do whatever you need, within reason, as a courtesy to me.

Thank you - should I just mention Grayson? (I ask as I'm assuming that it is a pseudonym) - the article I have in mind is a cashmere Zegna Napoli sportcoat - nothing close to a Kiton, but respectable nonetheless.

Thanks for your help,

Panzer

Panzer, mention Marc Grayson to Raph--I'll give him a heads-up that you might call.  I've seen Raph literally take apart Kiton and Brioni suits that were brought in for
alterations---I mean completely taken apart into their separate pieces on a cutting table---and basically re-made in order to make them fit like bespoke suits, so the repairs or alterations might take a little extra time...but it will be worth it. Enjoy.

Good to see you back marc.

Have to say, Panzer, this isn't having a go or anything, but Darren did a crackerjack job altering a sportcoat for me. 'course, you would have just missed his visit. Oh well.

Can anyone comment on what Raphael charges these days for a 2 piece suit made of H. Lesser or Smith Woolens cloth? I am trying to figure out if I should see Raphael or go to Oxxford while their master tailor/stylist is visiting NY. I think entry level Oxxford MTM price is about $2395. I am not sure what the cloth selection is like at that price, but I will find out either tomorrow or Friday. I realize that Raphael is custom and that Oxxford is MTM. If the price differential is marginal, I would likely go the custom route. But I would like to hear what others think. Thank you.

Probably go with Raphael if the price difference isn't significant.

I think Raphael is ~ 4,000. I'd say that's a pretty significant difference. (But probably worth it if you like the bespoke process.)
